Less than two weeks later, Jace ran away once again, leading Jenelle to report him missing, her manager told E! on Aug. 29.
The 14-year-old had been “out roaming the property,” exploring the forest and lakes nearby, when he went to a local gas station without telling Jenelle, according to the rep.
“After a couple hours Jenelle got worried and called the police,” the rep said, noting he was found five hours later. “The family is fine. Nothing to be alarmed about, Jace is a teenager finding his independence, wanting a bit more freedom, and Jenelle is a momma bear.”
Jenelle recently regained custody of Jace from her mom Barbara Evans, sharing on TikTok in March, “Thanks everyone for the support! Words can’t describe how happy I truly am. Our family is complete now! Thank you mom.”
